City Employees Receive “Mighty Oak” Awards

Post Date:10/04/2018 11:26 am

On Thursday, September 27, during the City Manager’s “All Hands” meeting, six City employees were presented with “Mighty Oak” Awards.  These awards liken each employee to the symbol of the oak tree, with strong roots in the community, the ability to withstand personal and professional trials due to their inherent moral values, being multi-talented in his/her service to the City, and enduring environmental changes without waiver.  Department and division heads nominated the following employees as the September 2018 award winners (listed from left to right in the picture):
